Either way, Anthony was ejected from the game in the second quarter because he swung his arm backwards and hit Sefolosha in the face with a closed fist.
It was part of the closing sequence to a very unusual game on Wednesday night that saw Carmelo Anthony ejected in the second quarter after taking a wild swing at Atlanta's Thabo Sefolosha. However, the officials later reviewed the play and gave Anthony a flagrant-2 foul, which comes with an automatic ejection. Clearly, Anthony made an attempt to hit Sefolosha. Anthony was previously ejected in the first half of a November 11 game against the Boston Celtics for back-to-back technicals; he hadn't been thrown out of a game for four years prior.
Porzingis started the play with a massive block on Paul Millsap, then ran the floor to finish a Brandon Jennings missed three with a putback dunk to get the New York Knicks within two in overtime in Atlanta.
